Top 10 Most Unappealing Beer Names
With almost 3,000 breweries in America alone, we’re apparently running out of unique names to adorn the beer labels. Here’s our list of the Top 10 Worst Beer Names.
1. Soft Dookie – Evil Twin
Seriously? Why is this necessary? By all accounts this is a very good imperial stout. But with a name like that, you’re going to lose some people. Honorable mention goes to the coffee-infused varient Liquid Dookie.
2. Butt Crack Brown – Klamath Basin Brewing Co. – The Creamery Brew Pub And Grill
When the nicest thing a reviewer has to say is “It tastes brown” – maybe that’s the best name to call it.
3. Kripple Dick – Keltek Brewing Company Ltd
This has got to be a made up beer. With only one Beer Advocate review, it seems that this may be someone’s idea of a practical joke. Bonus points for being fun to say.
4. Gael’s Blood Potato Ale – Crannóg Ales
I’d love to believe this was inspired by the play Blood Potato – a family drama filled with anger and meth – but it’s probably named after something people actually eat in Ireland. Either way, I’m not drinking it.
5. This Is The Shit That Killed Elvis – Ale Industries
According to popular legend, the king of rock and roll did die on his throne which makes the intended pun here pretty disgusting.
6. Reindeer Droppings – Ridgeway Brewing
Poop and beer should not be in the same conversation. Holiday animal poop included.
7. Barrel Aged Squid Ink – Goose Island Beer Co.
I think the “barrel aged” puts this Squid Ink over the edge. I’m sure it tastes great and is referring solely to the color; but it still sounds disgusting.
8. Oak Aged Rat Tail Ale – Cellar Rats Brewery
Much like Squid Ink, I don’t think putting Rat Tail in a barrel is making it a better idea.
9. Old Slug Porter – RCH Brewery
Because I favor the taste of young slugs, I’ve got to include Old Slug Porter. Probably the grossest terrestrial creature, I’m not a fan of putting it on a label.
10. Bud Light & Clamato Chelada – Anheuser-Busch, Inc.
Leave it to the marketing wizards at Anheuser-Busch to create a beer that no one wanted. It’s all right there in the name. All the piss-flavor of Bud Light combined with tomato juice and spices. And this piece of crap seems to live up to its name. From RateBeer user douglas88:
Pours a bile colored pinkish hue, a small white bubble of head. A terrible rotting mess of intestines, sick and something akin to salty rotten tomato. The flavor is super salty, intense, really sweet and salty tomato, somehow the lime just makes it so much worse, like spraying air refreshner after a troubling bathroom incident it actually all combines terrible ingredients to something unspeakable.
Those are my picks for the most un-appetizing beer names. If you know of something more unappealing, let us know in the comments.
